Apologies for the probable inanity of this question, but what do ASPI layers do? I keep seeing this as a solution to CD Audio problems, but when I run Aspichk I get a red box on the left, N/A marked on all items, and a note saying that I need to instal newer version.
ForceAspi, which also seems to be promoted, doesn’t change this at all, and all the files seem to be 1999 vintage.
I’m running XP on an Athlon 1900, 512 ddr, with Nero 184.108.40.206 and wmp9. SB Audigy with Creative. Asus A7V333 ACPI
Reason I’m trying is non recognition of CD-R as CD-R but rather as CD-RW (also with a couple of PC supplier Support disks). Recognition will normally take place after several eject/load. Also dual layer SACD (Sony Audio) will not load at all. Additionally up to 100 Buffer underruns on each burn.
Same happens on both CD-RW and DVD-ROM drive (Generic BP1700/Toshiba SD-M1612), so I assume, in my non technical fashion, that it must be a software/driver problem. (I’ve tried uninstalling Drivers and reloading but no difference)
Any help on the above also gratefully received
